Welcome to Earlswood Lakes Sailing Club

Earlswood Lakes Sailing Club is based on Windmill Lake near the village of Earlswood
south of Birmingham UK.  We welcome both experienced sailors and those wanting to learn.

Corona Virus Statement

ELSC is resuming sailing in a measured way following the lifting of certain COVID19 restrictions. At the moment this is limited to ad hoc sailing sessions and no organised racing. The bar and galley will not be operating. ODs and AODs need not attend until further notice. We are working on a revised programme to recommence racing in July.

In line with Government guidance and the RYA we have written a Risk Assessment for restarting sailing. Please do read it before coming back to the club.

Having found our site you may be interested in joining the club or getting some dinghy sailing training.  Either way, welcome!
Earlswood Lakes Sailing Club, founded in 1960, has approximately 120 members.
The club water is 27 acres, and the clubhouse is situated overlooking the Lake.
If you’re an experienced sailor then you will enjoy our compact and testing circuit, if you’re a complete novice then you will appreciate never being far from the shore or a safety boat.

Sailing is open to most classes of boats - generally any monohull with a Portsmouth Yardstick between 948 and 1180 having a centre board or dagger board. Fleets exist for Wanderer, Enterprise, Laser, Topper, Pico and Solo dinghies. Optimists are used by helms between 8 and 15 years of age.

Training to RYA standards is available at reasonable fees by arrangement with the club Training Principal.
